There is nothing quite like venturing away for the weekend. The change of scenery, the exciting buzz of unusual territory or taking in local cuisine does something refreshing that you just can’t beat. With the financial constraints of the modern world the weekend break seems more conventional and provides you with endless benefits. The weekend break allows you enough time to get away to recharge the batteries, without using a number of your holiday allowance in the process whilst being relatively light on your pocket.
The weekend break is a perfect excuse to get out there and expand your horizons, learn something new, meet new people and make connections in new places.
The only downside is when it comes to packing. Unfortunately, I find it hard to pack light and often I find it hard to pack anything in advance at all. The night before consists of a frantic packing spree and more often than not I have no idea what is in the case. However, if, like me, you struggle to pack efficiently we have compiled the list of essentials for that perfect autumn getaway to help you on your way and ensure the start of your break is as stress free as possible.
First we can start with the bag.
Like all things Vivienne Westwood this delivers premium build quality. Constructed with premium leather this holdall is of the highest quality. A perfect start to the weekend.
You can’t go anywhere without a denim shirt. Not only will this provide a stable option for any evening out, it will then also double up as a layering option or an over shirt should it be needed. By utilising items of clothing you can ensure that you will pack light.
The key to packing efficiently is making sure you pack good layers. A light knit is perfect for this time of year to provide a lightweight versatile layer of warmth plus it is a great contrast against other materials such as denim and cotton.
Be sure to throw in two pairs of jeans to ensure you can alter your outfits between day and night. Black or dark denim are often a good choice as they can be doubled up for both occasions.
We are a big fan of the palladium sport cuff boots, they are exceptionally stylish and provide a huge degree of practicality with them. They can be used for a city stroll or a wet winter walk through the countryside. At this time of year boots are an essential on everyone’s checklist.
With a few added extras your weekend bag should be ready to go. Remember, the key is to pack light and take items that can be layered in order to save space and give your outfits some versatility. Have a great weekend!
